Those Gathered
Pinku director Imaoka Shinji (Underwater Love) gives us his own version of Richard Linklater’s Slacker, as we follow a string of characters in a series of vignettes, each focusing on a different conversation relating to sex. In each of the 11 scenarios, one character from the previous scene is carried forward to the next. While some of these veer into more romantic territory, others explore more perverted territory, but the results prove surprisingly chaste considering Imaoka’s previous work.
